Waiting for Sunrise

March 23rd, 2010

In Winter 2009 I was on top of the Brocken (Harz Mountains, Germany) and had the most wonderful sunrise, I have ever seen. I started the walk at 5:00h in the morning at full moon, needed no headlight. There were about hundred people on top waiting for the Sun. It was a wonderful moment.

Canon IXUS 850IS.

N 51 47.975, E 10 36.910

I've been to the Harz mountains on the HSB Metre-gauge railway that scales the mountains. Stunning scenery.

nice photo although i dont see whats so 'stunning' about it. and i dont think it makes the best backround... (in just my opinion)
there is too much grain everywhere, and the people stand out too much, some dont mind that or even like it but i think there shouldnt be anyone in a shot like this..but still, very nice shot none the less

Grain is a film term. For digital files the term is called noise. I think if a photo has film grain it has a certain textural quality to it, whereas a photo with digital noise is more of a technical error than a photo technique.

The foreground is underexposed, and the noise is probably the result of trying to correct this in post-processing. Definitely not the quality I'd expect on IFL.

I think perhaps a ND Grad filter would have helped here. As Chris said, the foreground is underexposed, which led to the amount of noise you have in the picture. The filter would have allowed you to increase the exposure on the foreground while keeping the nice colours in the sky from the rising sun.

Guys, he took this with an IXUS 850IS. It's a point and shoot camera, with very sparse control ability.
